Enrique Enríquez will be revisiting Italo Calvino's Castle of Crossed Destinies. In 1973, Italian writer Italo Calvino wrote The Castle of Crossed Destinies, a novel in which characters who cannot speak to each other recount their tales using tarot cards. Enrique Enríquez will be re-enacting Calvino’s feat, turning Books & Books into a Bookshop of Crossed Destinies. Some members of the audience will be encouraged to tell their tales using tarot cards. Working as the narrator, Enríquez will put these tales into words. This event is FREE.
On Friday, July 30th and July 31st, from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m., Enrique Enríquez will be giving short tarot readings at Books&Books cafe.
There will be no fixed fee, and every person is encouraged to give a retribution that fits their possibilities.
On Sunday, August 1st, from 6 pm to 8 pm., Enrique Enríquez will be giving a workshop on The Marseilles tarot’s Visual Language. In this workshop, Enríquez shares his phenomenological approach to the tarot that doesn’t focus on symbolism but rather on the way we can use our body experience to understand images. By contrasting the the medieval notion of symmetry with our current understanding of the way our brain makes meaning, we will be able to apprehend the tarot’s language of shape. The cost of this workshop is $ 25
